Representatives from Sun Life will be at the farmer’s market on the downtown mall Thursday morning to present the Western Maryland Health System with a grant for $100,000 for its diabetes awareness program. The health system’s program is one of five community organizations around the country Sun Life U.S. is supporting for this year’s Team Up Against Diabetes grant program. Winners are chosen for their programs and initiatives supporting diabetes prevention, management and education, as well as healthy living and nutrition for local communities in need. Cumberland Mayor Ray Morriss will be on hand for the presentation, which will take place at 9:45 a.m. In addition, there will be games for children, cooking demonstrations and stress management activities, as well as information on WMHS programs and health screenings.
